West Peoria tenants still receiving silence from management as bill to repeal the Rent Control Preemption Act moves to the house floor.
Terry Nelson, President of the Manufactured Homeowners Association of Illinois told Jessica Cook rent increases happen too often in mobile home parks throughout the state.
Terry added, many times they are illegal and that is why MHOAI and other State advocates support House Bill 116, which aims to repeal the Rent Control Preemption Act passed in 1997.
The legislation states rent can be raised any amount and local government can’t interfere.
Nelson said” it’s time for this act to be history.”
“Then we can add in the form of amendments a way for local government or state, however the amendment, that reflects the need of the word affordable…When you have northern and southern Illinois you can’t really do something blanketed.
